RHEL/Centos 6, VM’s and Network interfaces

I’m not liking the ‘new’ use of udev rules to set network interfaces. It makes creating templates a tad more annoying.
I’m also not a fan of the use of NetworkManager in RHEL, but I didn’t install it, so I guess that doesn’t count.
Anyway, for those who wish to build VM templates remember this:

echo >/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Do this just before you shutdown and convert to template and it will detect the new NIC’s on boot.


So apparently I have a blog now.

Hi all,
If your reading this, then I apologize in advance.
This blog is more for me recoding things I do, in-case I need to do them again.

I’m a Win/Lin sys-admin with many years of experience in bending stubborn software to my will.

That’s about all I have at the moment.
